New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter introduces the Original Heartbreakers—beginning with a ruthless businessman about to break his own rules—in this special prequel novella!

Rich, powerful and utterly untamable, Dane Michaelson is every woman's darkest fantasy. When he returns to his hometown to witness his father's upcoming nuptials, he is unprepared for the redheaded beauty soon to become his stepsister. He's never wanted anyone more.

Kenna Starr has no desire to join the long list of women on rotation in Dane's bedroom. The single mom learned the hard way—bad boys do bad things, and someone always gets hurt. But Dane isn't fighting fair. With every heated look, stolen kiss and illicit caress, he melts her defenses.

Soon, the girl with the rep and the man who claims to be heartless are locked in a passionate affair. But when trouble arises, will they stand together or fall apart?

Look for the next books in the Original Heartbreakers—The Closer You Come, The Hotter You Burn and The Harder You Fall—from HQN Books!


  • Thank you

    Ok Gena I have read all your other fiction based books and they were fantastic, but this here is a series I am absolutely crazy about. Although the ending was a little rushed, it was still a brilliant start to the series. Thank you for shifting into this side of non-zombie, bloodsucking romance :)
  • Great short read.

    This'll was a great short read. I loved the both. Hopefully we will get to see more of them.

    I love this book! The humor between Dane & Kenna is everything I've ever wanted in a couple and is seemingly perfect, not at all over done. Can't wait to read more of hers!
  • At least it was free

    I'm not quite sure why I kept reading. This novel was pretty poor, but maybe since it was only a novella is why everything felt so rushed. No need to read this specific work.
